Now in its seventh year, the conflict has taken an even more devastating toll on the agriculture sector. In 2018, it is estimated that at least 1.5 million Syrians will be newly displaced, while around 1 million internally displaced people are expected to return to their communities of origin.
FAO is working with partners in the Food Security Cluster to:
• Improve the food security of assessed food-insecure people through emergency life-saving and regular life sustaining food assistance.
• Support the life-saving livelihoods of affected households by increasing agricultural production, protecting and building productive assets and restoring or creating income-generating opportunities.
• Improve the capacity to deliver essential services for improved linkages with value chain through the rehabilitation/building of productive infrastructure as well as supporting services, early warning and disaster risk reduction systems.
